If you are new to WhereDoesAllMyMoneyGo.com, every Friday I run a post called “A Lap Of The Blogs” which provides links to articles I found interesting and think that others may want to read for themselves. I also include some commentary on what’s going on in my personal life and a weekly “racing video” since my former life was in the auto-racing industry. The name “Lap of the Blogs” is in reference to “A Lap Of The Gods” which is an old video series which chronicled on-board footage of the world’s greatest F1 drivers lapping various racetracks from around the world.
It’s been a while since the last edition of A Lap Of The Blogs as my attention has been pulled in many different directions in the last two months of 2008, but I’m happy to say that we’re back to our regularly scheduled programming. Thanks for putting up with the sporadic posting schedule and Happy New Year to you all!
